A Neil Gaiman Children's Book Read-A-Thon Review: Chu's Day



(Part of my personal


Source: Library

Publication Date: January 2013

Short Synopsis (Goodreads)Chu is a little panda with a big sneeze.

When Chu sneezes, bad things happen.

Will Chu sneeze today?

My Review: Obviously I'm not the target audience for these books. But as a kid at heart, and a potential mother, aunt, benevolent stranger who could buy this book for the kids it is meant for, this is my opinion - it's a cute, light-hearted read.

This being Neil Gaiman, I was expecting a little more, but I guess if I had understood that this was a little kids kid's book, it's simplicity would not have mattered. That being said, I thought that the illustrations by Adam Rex matched perfectly with the storyline and were very well done.

For all its simplicity and shortness, it was a cute little tale and one that would be fun to read to little kids and have them practice their panda sneezes or something.

PS - there is a picture in the back of the book of Neil Gaiman holding a baby panda. How cool is that!
